William's Blog...with a smile!


The Definition of success. Here is one view. (Humor)

Everyone has an idea of what success is, and it is different for everyone.  Here is a list of what my Dad came up with just lately!

Age 4...Not peeing your pants.

age 10...Making your own meals.

Age 12...Having friends.

Age 16...Having a drivers license.

Age 20...Having sex.

Age 35...Having Money.

Age 50...Having Money.

Age 60...having sex.

Age 70...Having a drivers license.

Age 75...Having friends.

Age 80...Making your own meals.

Age 85...Not peeing your pants.

It is the cycle of life!

I like your list and now I know what I have in store for me at each age.  I do question age 20 tho.

Bill, we do end up where we start...babysitters, diapers, and soft food, all come around twice.

This list is frightening because I can almost identify with it.....almost.

I will say I identify with most of these also.  Teh scary part is that I am afraid I will also identify with the rest also.

Bill, I have seen this first hand also.  Sad part is that most of this list is right on.  Especially late in life!
